    Financially exploited my Mom Jun 29, 2021

    By Amy
    It didn’t make clear to her the amount of money she was spending each time she would click on various buttons. She ended up racking up a bill of over $1200! Stay away from this one!

    Word crush: a strange game Jun 22, 2021

    By joan jordan
    I think a non-English speaker writes these games. Some of the word choices are ludicrous. These are examples: raw does not rhyme with all; how do you hide money in a printer; a socket is not a place to hide money etc,etc,etc. What does the word "easeful" mean?

    Disgusting! How dare you represent Alzheimer’s patients as people who only babble unintelligibly Jun 19, 2021

    Disgusting! How dare you represent people who have Alzheimer’s disease is babbling idiots! It’s despicable and I wouldn’t allow anybody I knew to download a game with such a prejudiced and heinous view of a population.
  • Addictive Brain-Fun but points earned/used charged against my Apple account Jan 30, 2021

    By MsFrugaLady
    I quickly became addicted to this word game. I started noticing that I was earning points and I thought “wow that’s great; I wonder what I can buy with the points?” Then I made a small purchase of $.99.p, noticing that I had to login to my Apple Account. I immediately noticed that my points did not decrease. So I checked my Apple account and the $.99 was taken out of my Apple account - instead of from the points that I earned through playing this game. So that’s disappointing and I've lost interest in this deceptive points-earning game. I’d rather play it - without earning any points - since I can’t actually use the points earned to make a purchase. I don’t know if the points (are supposed to) continue on day by day, but I did notice that when I began to play the next day my previous points were gone. It’s also very difficult to get back to the menu of this game - so that I can review the rules & information again.

    Word crush is a relaxing yet fun game. I like the ability to go at my own pace. Its not difficult and fun little brain teaser to be quick witted and a fun way to find each word, with hints and bonuses in game. XOX you can personalize after winning different backgrounds and add you progress through the levels of themed word association you'll find yourself (of your like me) zipping through each level. It's fun and rewarding to complete and make it far fast.
  • Love this game! Jul 6, 2020

    This has been my my favorite word game by far. It’s great to challenge the brain and keep it sharp. The levels are generally not too hard but challenging. Some levels are repeated (I’m in the 700’s now) but it doesn’t happen so often that it gets boring. I like that there is no messaging capability between players and you really have no way of knowing anyone else other than to see them on a tournament leaderboard. That way I never get harassed by creepers. The placement of the hint options is the only thing I’d say needs to be revamped- it’s too easy to hit them by accident with your thumb and use coins you didn’t intend to. Once I purchased the game, the ads went away- although you can choose to watch an add for additional coins or rewards if you want but it’s not necessary. Overall this is a fantastic word game for a nerd like me.

    Good application. It stretches my spelling abilities. One problem is that many words are spelt wrong. Words like colour and catalogue. It must be just the incorrect American spelling of the words. Sometimes I see a word and decide that can't be right as it's spelt wrong. Some words accepted don't even exist in the proper English language. So would the application programmers please use a reputable English language dictionary to check the correct spelling of the words before using them.
  • Perfect Word Game!!! Mar 11, 2020

    By Zalphar
    I just quit playing a game I really loved (Warlords of Aternum) after 3 years because the devs ruined it. Been playing Word Crush for just one week and am already at level 312. Saw my wife playing, so I downloaded it. Quickly got going and am now totally addicted. Extremely enjoyable, relaxing game, with vivid colors, great themes and not too heavy on ads. Other word games I’ve tried are frustrating and poorly conceived. Word Crush’s Bonus feature is fantastic because it accepts nearly every word in the English dictionary including many colloquialisms. Overall the game is challenging, but not completely ridiculous. Game fits my brain structure so well that I haven’t needed to use any of the hints or helps thus far. The few times I was stuck, I got a notification after a few hours with a “suggestion” which was very helpful. Further, I was enjoying myself so much that I won a tournament that I didn’t even know I was in! I am a vocal player regarding glitches and suggestions. But so far I haven’t seen a single thing I would change, which is why I rated it 5 stars. The devs of Word Crush designed a truly praiseworthy game for which they deserve much credit and the perfect rating I gave it. Sincerely, Scott

  • WHEN ARE MORE LEVELS COMING?!? Mar 17, 2021

    By MaxMarch
    This is a great and highly addictive game BUT when are more levels coming? The release of new levels is constantly behind the installed base of users. It means the game is unplayable for months at a time as you lose ranking in the tournaments. Support is totally unresponsive so much so that twice now I thought the developer had abandoned the game completely. Developers: PLEASE communicate with your loyal players! When are more levels coming? Make a commitment to get it done and tell your users what is happening with your game. I still give this title my top rating because, when you’re not out of levels, it’s one of the best word games around but, when you run out of levels, it’s like a punch in the gut. Developers! Get your act together PLEASE!

  • More frustrating than fun Jan 7, 2020

    By Midorrian2
    I played 250 levels. At first I thought it got harder as I went, but no. They may add more words, but the levels don’t get harder; on the contrary, they are highly repetitive, using the same words over and over. That was strike one. The game is British. Nothing wrong with that, but there wasn’t a warning, so I was trying to spell a word that the game wouldn’t take. I eventually figured it out, but it’s hard to play a game when you don’t know the lingo. Lastly and most importantly to me, the ads force sound. I can be anywhere with my sound off, but the game will suddenly spawn an ad that is loud and play the sound anyway. Since I am looking for a game to play while in waiting rooms and such, this game will not work for me. If the other two issues did not exist, I would consider just paying to get rid of the ads. With so many apps out there, this one gets a no from me.

    So far it ia fun because you can find the words without getting a mirgrain headache. If it becomes too difficult to locate the words or I need to spend my money this app will be un-installed as fast as you can say so. I hate apps that only want money!

    On two occasions when trying to exit an ad for some other app, the other app has tried to install. The first time, I wasn't able to cancel the install though I tried many times. That app changed multiple settings on my phone without permission. I couldn't find it in "my apps"the play store, but was able to uninstall it by finding it elsewhere. Today, another app tried the same thing. Even though I clicked on the X to exit the ad, Pandora tried install. It at least let me cancel.
  • Love this game, BUT......... Jul 11, 2020

    By deb7700
    I’ve played this game more than any - ever! I’ve won two championships, have reached level 2148, have almost 25,000 coins, and have amassed many “hints”. Then, the game froze and I can’t move on. I can play the dailies, but not the regular game. I tried the ‘app support’ button and was led to a site that welcomed me to ‘nginx’ and lists of codes, numbers, and dates. I tried ‘developer website’ and received the message that the page was removed. I am so frustrated and unhappy.......and would appreciate any suggestions. Update: even more frustrated! Got NO response to the above; saw a response to someone with he same problem so followed the advice given to that person — uninstall, reinstall, update, and problem solved..... didn’t work for me. So, I finally just started over. I’m now back to level 180, doing well in the current tournament, and realized that I am not getting credit (coins) for all the bonus words......arrrgh! Please help........there are lots of other word games, so I’m probably done with this developer’s games. 2nd update just a few minutes after the last! Lo and behold! I opened the app once again, just to finish the tournament, and all my original coins and hints were restored and I was returned to the level where I froze! Yay!! 5 STARS again!

    By Camille Dodd
    I'm giving this a low score not because the game is not fun, but because of the update system. Three times now, the game has stopped and told me that it needed an update. Even when I hit "deny," it takes me to the update screen. It will not let me continue until I update...which has installed a completely different game EVERY SINGLE TIME. I now have three extra games on my phone that I didn't want. It seems that the game company is artificially inflating its download count for all of its games.
  • Good Game Worse Operation - Frustration too high to keep May 22, 2020

    By Saywhy
    In Response to Developer Request to update Review: Your response did not indicate any changes had been made to lessen the number of ads, time required to watch (some require watching full ad) or steps necessary to get out of ads. When more time is dedicated to ads than playing the game, the objective is lost. I realize the developer is due some reward for developing but not like this. Sorry. Initially rated high until I found out how much time was required to play a simple game. Game is good problem is game is designed to force you to pay to use; either you spend money or time. One round/word location in the game may take 3 seconds then you spend 35 seconds forced to watch an advertisement for another game. This is because game does not allow you to shuffle letters without repeating this process (letters purposely need shuffling). Summary 2 words may take several minutes. Waste of time. Other game advertisements don’t force you to wash the advertisements in entirety as does this one. There are better word games ou there. I’m gone.
  • Oct 19, 2021

    By Marlene Donner
    I really liked this game. I understand they need add so that they can get paid. But to have an ad after every third try and the ad last 3 minutes long, ruins the game and that's why I uninstalled it.
  • Oct 6, 2021

    By Nas Amarah
    Decent game. I payed for the ad free version but it's pretty repetitive. Not my complaint however. The real problem is the amount of bots they add to tournaments to keep you from getting the top spots. You can actively play yet somehow a player comes out of nowhere and eclipses you by a few hundred points..
  • Loved it until got notification needed to declare cloud or device May 20, 2021

    By Creativegkee
    I had reached level 950. Had been thoroughly enjoying the combination of word search and strategy until today. A pop up makes me decide something about cloud or device and warns me that the decision can’t be changed so decide carefully (without ever explaining what this is for or why). But won’t let me continue to play without making the decision. I just deleted the app. There are lots of other games out there without this. Update: I eventually relented and started using again even though had to choose cloud or local option. I chose local - giving up my progress and more difficult games. What fries me is that since then I have not been able to watch a video or get ANY freebies AT ALL. I feel like they are punishing me for choosing local. BE WARNED. This really Stinks. I want to know I lose points when I choose to play a daily puzzle. Stop bouncing the little free box if you are NEVER going to give me access to it. Very annoying.
  • Great game, but... Mar 14, 2020

    By KshdWL4
    This is it fun game, but the major problem is the number of commercials. Even that would not be such a problem, because many free games have similar numbers of commercials, but twice an “option” to upgrade popped up in the center of the game screen and there was no way to remove it. The only choice was to purchase the upgrade to continue the game. I switched off of the game a number of times, but the “option” remained on the screen each time I pulled the game back up. I finally deleted the game. One suggestion: at one point A number of options to upgrade popped up. Prices were different but it was unclear (at least to me) what benefits were included in each option. Clarifying this would really help. I like the game enough that I would have purchased the option to remove the adds but it was unclear for how long that would be effective Once again, this is a great game, but, at least for me, the fun was outweighed by the frustration

    This has been my my favorite word game by far. It’s great to challenge the brain and keep it sharp. The levels are generally not too hard but challenging. Some levels are repeated (I’m in the 700’s now) but it doesn’t happen so often that it gets boring. I like that there is no messaging capability between players and you really have no way of knowing anyone else other than to see them on a tournament leaderboard.

  • The developers may hate me.... Jan 26, 2021

    By XXtra Hhints
    Everyone complains about all of the ads that you must sit through while playing this game. Once when I was on an airline flight, I discovered that this game works great when you have no internet connection. If you play this game in Airline mode, which you can turn on under the Settings menu of your device any time, you can play for as long as you want with no annoying ads and it doesn’t cost you a thing.... Then when you are done playing the game and want to go back online, you just turn the Airline mode off. Simple solution! Of course, now that I have pointed this out, the developers may delete my comment or revise the application so that you can’t play it offline. We’ll see!!!
  • Great until it stopped working Jun 23, 2020

    By Juan tiene suerte
    Been playing this for a while and like it but unfortunately today the game seems to have broken. I’m able to play the daily game, but when I move on to a regular game (I’m at level 556) it freezes. Too bad because I like the weekend competition. UPDATE: Still broken on 6/22. Everything seems fine except that no game loads at level 556 which means I can’t move on. I guess I could delete and reinstall, but that probably means I lose all my coins (over 18,000) and my advancement. I guess I will just delete. UPDATE 2: So I got an email response from the designers. They are aware and working on a fix, but gave me a workaround. Go back to the first game of the first level and play it again. This unlocks everything and after you finish that first game it brings you to your current, pre-lock level. YMMV - but this worked for me and I did not lose any coins or levels. Giving back the stars I took away for their quick response and easy work around until they get it sorted out.

  • Great potential Oct 29, 2020

    By Local Walnut
    App is great for a wordy person but has lots of little weaknesses that detract. Examples include throwing french words into an English game. E.g. “Pape” instead of “Pope” as someone who wears white. Even though you can see a lot of the words before they are crushed into position you can’t get credit til one particular word is found and that word can be a french word so its weird. Also sometimes the app simply won’t accept that you have found a word. I try to select it over and over it wouldn’t take but after flipping the board it let me take it. (I think the example was “Bridge”. If you don’t find a word in 4 seconds it will start bouncing cheat options in the tray which is annoying. But the mix of terms is better than I expected so I still play it sometimes.
  • Pay to play in higher levels... Apr 25, 2020

    By mzkuriosity25
    I found this fun and somewhat challenging but am about to give up and uninstall. Once you get into the upper more challenging levels a lot of categories/subjects are very vague and you don’t even know where to start. Either that or you have to keep shuffling letters more and more often to get words and complete the level, which drains all your coins quickly. I bought the 660 coin pack for 2.99 and within half an hour to an hour I have none. No coins = no advancing and it repeatedly begs you to buy from the store to keep progressing. I’m not constantly spending money to play this. Shame because it’s a good boredom cure and fun to play. :(

    Hello I give it a 4 star because sometimes is confusing in some levels for example sometimes you have to look for words that has to do with the title ect and you’ll find words that doesn’t make sense, that doesn’t have to anything with the title. For example, level 1883 you need to find words that ends with the letters EAT but their is a word that don’t belong their because it does not end with EAT witch the word is SWEET and it don’t end with EAT and they just confuse me and makes waste my time because I’m just here looking for words that end with EAT when all this time it was a wrong word.
  • Bugs not fixed Sep 19, 2021

    By psychrn07
    This game can be fun EXCEPT when one gets “kicked off” just as one has received one “spyglass” & has the option of receiving 2 spyglasses by watching video only for game to close at that exact time. I was also not credited for that one spyglass that I earned by finishing a level. My other complaint is some of the words that the writers use for their clues. I have a fairly extensive American vocabulary & am also acquainted with some British words, but there are some words that are foreign to me and end up looking them up after the fact. Thank you!

    I like the game, but absolutely hate the placement of the icon for letter hints. I have hit that stupid thing 5 times - not once that was actually intended... It’s perfectly placed to hit by accident, and of course takes the most points. I have at no time had any desire to use that feature, but I get dinged by it anyway... It would be great if it was at the end. Also, I paid to remove ads, and for the first couple of weeks I didn’t have any, but they’re back! It would be great if the ad-less game I paid for was what I was actually getting.
  • Really enjoyable Feb 2, 2021

    By COMEDY OF ERRORS
    This has become my favorite word game! I do wish the badge challenges were structured differently though. This should be a daily all day challenge instead of timed like it is now. The way they are structured now if you trigger a badge challenge by playing a game then you have to finish all three levels in a certain time period. Well that means one sitting playing for hours which I just can’t do and I would think many people can’t. Let those of us who can only play a few puzzles at a time have a chance at badges too
  • Almost perfect! Jan 28, 2020

    By Lauralynnmcd
    I love this game and have been having a blast playing. My only complaint that keeps this from being a 5 star game is that I’ve probably lost at least 300 coins from accidentally hitting the help options on the bottom! Very frustrating to lose the coins on help I don’t even need! This last time I accidentally hit the 125 coin help option and that one sucked :( Needs to be moved or a “are you sure you want to use ____ coins for a hint” confirmation button. Otherwise I really love this game- it’s fun, quick and keeps me playing!
  • Like the game, but there are some issues May 24, 2021

    By Abs12🥳
    I like this game a lot, it never gets old bc of all the new levels, but my hand always accidentally touches the hint buttons and then I have to pay coins for hints I didn’t want. Also, sometimes the words don’t seem like they are English. Lastly, it would be good if when you need to update the game, you don’t have to do it immediately or you can’t play the game if you don’t. I think just a friendly reminder that you need to update would be better. But, overall it’s a good game
  • One of my Very Favorite Games! Aug 13, 2020

    By MichaelLynne
    😊I’ve really enjoyed playing each of these low pressure but quick paced thoughtful games! I enjoy the workout it gives my eye-to-brain function. 🤨BUT why did you start putting the 3 buttons that order various Help within a hairbreadth of the working area!?! On my iPhone SE (which is very small) I can’t help but continually hit the Helps button spending my points or cash when I don’t need to! If you can’t fix this, I’ll have to delete your app. It’s pretty transparent that it’s a set-up, folks.

    Word crush: a strange game Jun 22, 2021

    By joan jordan
    I think a non-English speaker writes these games. Some of the word choices are ludicrous. These are examples: raw does not rhyme with all; how do you hide money in a printer; a socket is not a place to hide money etc,etc,etc. What does the word "easeful" mean?
  • Addictive Brain-Fun but points earned/used charged against my Apple account Jan 30, 2021

    By MsFrugaLady
    I quickly became addicted to this word game. I started noticing that I was earning points and I thought “wow that’s great; I wonder what I can buy with the points?” Then I made a small purchase of $.99.p, noticing that I had to login to my Apple Account. I immediately noticed that my points did not decrease. So I checked my Apple account and the $.99 was taken out of my Apple account - instead of from the points that I earned through playing this game. So that’s disappointing and I've lost interest in this deceptive points-earning game. I’d rather play it - without earning any points - since I can’t actually use the points earned to make a purchase. I don’t know if the points (are supposed to) continue on day by day, but I did notice that when I began to play the next day my previous points were gone. It’s also very difficult to get back to the menu of this game - so that I can review the rules & information again.
  • More frustrating than fun Jan 7, 2020

    By Midorrian2
    I played 250 levels. At first I thought it got harder as I went, but no. They may add more words, but the levels don’t get harder; on the contrary, they are highly repetitive, using the same words over and over. That was strike one. The game is British. Nothing wrong with that, but there wasn’t a warning, so I was trying to spell a word that the game wouldn’t take. I eventually figured it out, but it’s hard to play a game when you don’t know the lingo. Lastly and most importantly to me, the ads force sound. I can be anywhere with my sound off, but the game will suddenly spawn an ad that is loud and play the sound anyway. Since I am looking for a game to play while in waiting rooms and such, this game will not work for me. If the other two issues did not exist, I would consider just paying to get rid of the ads. With so many apps out there, this one gets a no from me.

    Good game but can't watch vids to earn stuff cause it keeps crashing and going back to the home screen..on the bright side tho, the ads don't happen because of this issue.
  • Like the game but the really long ads are a drag Apr 19, 2021

    By good game but REALLY long ads
    Game is fun and stimulating to play. I play the free version and understand the need for ads to pay the bills. With that said, however, the ads are very long and they seem to come before you can start nearly every game. It really increases the time commitment to play the game and I get bored waiting for the ad to finish. It really stops the momentum of the game. It would be nice if the developers would cut the ad length in half or at least shorten subsequent viewings of ads that have already been seen once or twice in their entirety. Other games have ads that allow you to skip it after 5 or 10 seconds and that would be delightful in this setting too. One can get the point of the ad in a few seconds and decide if it interests them or not, 30 seconds is way too long. Please shorten them.
  • Liked game until it froze Jul 5, 2020

    By Noni 265
    Was enjoying the game and had earned thousands of points through the tournaments and by finding extra words and completing many levels. Unfortunately this week the game froze and then wouldn’t reload. The only thing to do was to delete the app and reload. Now I’m back to the first level and all my points are gone. I’m done with this game now. I won’t start over. It was already getting a bit redundant with the same words being used again and again in the puzzles. Fun while it lasted I guess. I’ve seen on line that many people have experienced the app freezing up. It is almost worse knowing it is a glitch in the program that they have known about for a long time and have yet to fix. It particularly seems to happen when people have gotten deep into the levels and earned lots of points.

    I was enjoying the game until it just stopped. I've only been playing maybe a week. Everytime I try to play it either loads and the game freezes or the game shuts off. Should delete game and start over?
  • Fun but.. Oct 17, 2021

    By Hcat42
    I like this game for the game play itself. It’s fun and challenging. The issues I have with it is first, no warning before you use coins for something. So if you accidentally hit a option for a clue that cost coins, it just takes it. I prefer games that warn you and make sure you want to use the coins . When playing g on a phone it’s so easy to hit something you didn’t mean to. The other would be the ads. I mean soooo many ads. I know it’s a free game and we have to have ads to pay for it. I accept that because all free games do. But I don’t think I have ever played one that has this many. If I am in the middle of a game and have to my phone down to do something for a few minutes, when I come back I have to watch another freaking ad just to get back to where I left off. It’s ridiculous .

  • Total coins Jan 28, 2020

    By Lbware
    I’m given this game only 3 stars for the way the total coins total is handled ( total coins). I play every morning early and every evening while watching tv. Twice this game has taken away all my points (coins). I’m at level 274 and trying to see how many points a can earn. The first time I reach a total of 19? (Don’t remember the exact number) and as I went to play the next game, hoping to reach 200 the game went back to zero points and I had to start over. Shrugged it off and continued to play. This morning shad worked my way up too 194 coins and the game did it again. Twice on thee same game is too much for me. Will not try again I’m done with this game and any other game by this developer. I also refuse too buy points so watch a lot of commercials. Les
  • Loved it until got notification needed to declare cloud or device May 20, 2021

    By Creativegkee
    I had reached level 950. Had been thoroughly enjoying the combination of word search and strategy until today. A pop up makes me decide something about cloud or device and warns me that the decision can’t be changed so decide carefully (without ever explaining what this is for or why). But won’t let me continue to play without making the decision. I just deleted the app. There are lots of other games out there without this. Update: I eventually relented and started using again even though had to choose cloud or local option. I chose local - giving up my progress and more difficult games. What fries me is that since then I have not been able to watch a video or get ANY freebies AT ALL. I feel like they are punishing me for choosing local. BE WARNED. This really Stinks. I want to know I lose points when I choose to play a daily puzzle. Stop bouncing the little free box if you are NEVER going to give me access to it. Very annoying.
  • Great game, but... Mar 14, 2020

    By KshdWL4
    This is it fun game, but the major problem is the number of commercials. Even that would not be such a problem, because many free games have similar numbers of commercials, but twice an “option” to upgrade popped up in the center of the game screen and there was no way to remove it. The only choice was to purchase the upgrade to continue the game. I switched off of the game a number of times, but the “option” remained on the screen each time I pulled the game back up. I finally deleted the game. One suggestion: at one point A number of options to upgrade popped up. Prices were different but it was unclear (at least to me) what benefits were included in each option. Clarifying this would really help. I like the game enough that I would have purchased the option to remove the adds but it was unclear for how long that would be effective Once again, this is a great game, but, at least for me, the fun was outweighed by the frustration
  • Oct 14, 2021

    By Notes for the Spirit
    I began playing this game via Tapjoy to earn game diamonds/credits for another game. Rules say they pay out diamonds at specific levels achieved. 1st level was 15, and I was paid 168 diamonds as promised. Next level was 50 , which I achieved 5 days ago. They were supposed to be paid within an hour but, I still have not received my 337 diamonds for level 50. I am assuming any further play will also be fruitless so, I am uninstalling. As a rule, I don't continue to play games that rip me off.
  • Tournaments and help Aug 15, 2021

    By Copperhead from Texas
    I downloaded this game, got hooked on it, even went so far as to purchase the game so it would be ad free, AND purchased coins, which I NEVER do. When I first got the game, I was in the tournament, was actually in first place the WHOLE time until the last hour or so, and lo and behold, someone came from apparently waaaayyyyy behind me, and won😏😏😏. Anyway, since then, I have only been able to be in one tournament, and that was for only a couple of hours. When I went back to play the game, tournament was nowhere to be found, and have not been able to get in on another one. What is really aggravating me is that I have reached out to you on 4 separate occasions through the “talk to us” button in the settings tab, and have gotten N O R E S P O N S E. Is that button there just for decoration or what. Ready to uninstall the game if I do not get a response back.
  • Not impressed Mar 11, 2021

    By pony 444444
    I thought ANY game which encouraged learning proper spelling was a good thing, these guys have proved me wrong. First, the spelling is not always correct for the “right” answer, whaaat?second, I have more words in the “not counted” words bucket, than on the screen?!? Then there are the ads.... WAAAAAAAAY Too many ads, AND NO! I am not going to pay for such a pedantic game just to not be annoyed by the ads every minute. Also, the ads ARE MORE ANNOYING THAN MOST for this thing, they imply that the younger your brain, the better, VERY AGEIST! Have you know idea who your audience is? Taken to the extreme, being a baby, or negative age is “better”? Or are you implying the more I play, the dumber, more naive, less knowledgeable, less educated, and more juvenile I will become? Why would I play this? Looking for a spelling game to help the kids improve academically, but THIS ain’t it!
  • Needs improvement Apr 20, 2020

    By PlatypusAssasin
    First of all, the words are entirely too simple. They’re not really the kind of words that offer a challenge (as, me, at, him, her, there, etc.). Secondly, if you get a trivia question wrong (I got a LOT wrong) that’s it. No option to learn the right answer? No popup of a related verse? It’s just simply wait three minutes or complete several more overly simplistic puzzles. Finally, the WORST offense is this; when a scripture verse comes up at the end of a chapter I can only see part of it and I never do see the rest of the verse. Overall, it’s not terrible and the music is soothing, but as someone who has an above average vocabulary it just isn’t interesting. And as someone who has forgotten a lot of the small details over the years it would have been nice to get a refresher, but no. It’s just, “Wrong answer; try again in three minutes.”
  • Good game, BUT Oct 11, 2021

    By kookie.krums
    I love word games such as this one, but many times these games are only played in One Direction. I have an iPad and I’m on it continuously because I’m handicap, so I have to keep it plugged in. I download these games in the hopes that they rotate in both Portrait and landscape. but they never do. They advertise in One Direction and then it’s played in the opposite after its download. I cannot play a game looking sideways, and I cannot turn it up right because I have to keep this plugged in and there’s no room for my plug to rest without me sitting on the cord causing it to bend and possibly break the wiring. I would be happy if developers would make the game play in either direction, but for now I have to delete it. Maybe one day they will make some changes that all can play it.
  • I LOVED (past tense) this game Jun 15, 2020

    By Danzarooni
    I absolutely loved this game as it was both mind-numbing and a little mind-pressing. I got up to level 834 - Palindrome Pairs and it froze. I had been loving the new badges that were being added and new fun ways to compete to make it fun but not too stressful. Now I can only play the daily game and no more levels as it is frozen on level 834 even though I see there are many levels above 834. I’m bummed because I did really like this app. I came in 2nd, twice for tournaments, and first once! I was pretty proud of myself because normally I’m not competitive but I played hard and it was fun and a way to turn my stressed-out brain off from the world for a while. Oh well. 2 stars because it was a good run while it lasted.
  • Frustrating Instead of Fun Jul 4, 2020

    By nikkikasper
    My husband introduced me to this game a few months ago and I fell in love immediately. Fun game to pass the time or to keep my brain moving even when my body isn’t. I am over level 2100 and I have over 45,000 coins because I rarely use hints. Sadly, today the game has frozen and locked me out. It won’t even load for me to screen shot and prove what level I’m on. I have done everything possible to fix the problem and still won’t load. I rebooted my iPad, checked my internet connection, closed out the app and reopened it... nothing. As I read other reviews it seems like this isn’t just happening to me. Would be nice if the problem was finally fixed!!
  • Fun App, But Could Be So Much Better Oct 9, 2021

    By brenbail
    I enjoy the app, but the glitches are getting beyond frustrating. The plus…makes me use my brain instead of playing some mindless app. BIG NEGATIVE…app freezes and crashes A LOT! I tried reaching out to tech support, but got nowhere. Asked me to send screenshots, and I did. Then was told we can’t see any problems with the pics you sent. Every update I think it’s going to be fixed, but still experiencing freezing and crashing. As I said, I enjoy the game, but definitely needs a lot of work in programming, and tech support could be more helpful. I’d give it 5 stars for concept, but only 2 stars for programming and support.

    On two occasions when trying to exit an ad for some other app, the other app has tried to install. The first time, I wasn't able to cancel the install though I tried many times. That app changed multiple settings on my phone without permission. I couldn't find it in "my apps"the play store, but was able to uninstall it by finding it elsewhere. Today, another app tried the same thing. Even though I clicked on the X to exit the ad, Pandora tried install. It at least let me cancel.
  • Love this game, BUT......... Jul 11, 2020

    By deb7700
    I’ve played this game more than any - ever! I’ve won two championships, have reached level 2148, have almost 25,000 coins, and have amassed many “hints”. Then, the game froze and I can’t move on. I can play the dailies, but not the regular game. I tried the ‘app support’ button and was led to a site that welcomed me to ‘nginx’ and lists of codes, numbers, and dates. I tried ‘developer website’ and received the message that the page was removed. I am so frustrated and unhappy.......and would appreciate any suggestions. Update: even more frustrated! Got NO response to the above; saw a response to someone with he same problem so followed the advice given to that person — uninstall, reinstall, update, and problem solved..... didn’t work for me. So, I finally just started over. I’m now back to level 180, doing well in the current tournament, and realized that I am not getting credit (coins) for all the bonus words......arrrgh! Please help........there are lots of other word games, so I’m probably done with this developer’s games. 2nd update just a few minutes after the last! Lo and behold! I opened the app once again, just to finish the tournament, and all my original coins and hints were restored and I was returned to the level where I froze! Yay!! 5 STARS again!
  • Oct 6, 2021

    By Camille Dodd
    I'm giving this a low score not because the game is not fun, but because of the update system. Three times now, the game has stopped and told me that it needed an update. Even when I hit "deny," it takes me to the update screen. It will not let me continue until I update...which has installed a completely different game EVERY SINGLE TIME. I now have three extra games on my phone that I didn't want. It seems that the game company is artificially inflating its download count for all of its games.
  • Good Game Worse Operation - Frustration too high to keep May 22, 2020

    By Saywhy
    In Response to Developer Request to update Review: Your response did not indicate any changes had been made to lessen the number of ads, time required to watch (some require watching full ad) or steps necessary to get out of ads. When more time is dedicated to ads than playing the game, the objective is lost. I realize the developer is due some reward for developing but not like this. Sorry. Initially rated high until I found out how much time was required to play a simple game. Game is good problem is game is designed to force you to pay to use; either you spend money or time. One round/word location in the game may take 3 seconds then you spend 35 seconds forced to watch an advertisement for another game. This is because game does not allow you to shuffle letters without repeating this process (letters purposely need shuffling). Summary 2 words may take several minutes. Waste of time. Other game advertisements don’t force you to wash the advertisements in entirety as does this one. There are better word games ou there. I’m gone.
  • Oct 19, 2021

    By Marlene Donner
    I really liked this game. I understand they need add so that they can get paid. But to have an ad after every third try and the ad last 3 minutes long, ruins the game and that's why I uninstalled it.
  • Oct 6, 2021

    By Nas Amarah
    Decent game. I payed for the ad free version but it's pretty repetitive. Not my complaint however. The real problem is the amount of bots they add to tournaments to keep you from getting the top spots. You can actively play yet somehow a player comes out of nowhere and eclipses you by a few hundred points..
  • Oct 14, 2021

    By Marc Ford
    Why do advertisers/developers think it is a great idea to have ads with sound when a user has selected sounds to be off. Usually a good way to have me quit the game quickly. Very annoying.

    I liked this game until political questions keep coming up in order to get a bonus. This game and politics do not belong together. Lose the questions or I will have to uninstall. Not fun anymore.
